Cool car, GG... I think that's the direction we will go in when we tire of our, too big, Milan..

My eldest sis and bil have had several Ford Escapes over recent years, and love them.

Btw, you know it's pronounced Es-cop-A...

Many safe and happy miles while driving in your new car, GG. Time for a Road Trip! I'm guessing, though, that Charleston has been put on the back burner until the rains and flooding stops?

Thanks! Yes, we are talking about waiting till spring and doing a longer trip including a stop at Chef and the Farmer. Our 35th anniversary is next year, so we're thinking about how to celebrate it

My FIL in Michigan is wondering when we're going to go visit him again, so DH wants to do Thanksgiving there and invite his brothers and sister and their families. We would be there for a week or so, since I hate traveling close to Thanksgiving, and it's not that far off.

I saw this video about a cute prairie dog earlier today and it made me chuckle. My SIL's younger daughter had a prairie dog for a pet when they lived in FL, but theirs never got to dress up like this!

OK, now for the real reason I came to share my smile:

Many of you know I've been on a reduced liquid order by a nephrologist due to a low sodium level in my blood. After three months of being a good girl, I now have a sodium level in the normal range! Finally, one thing about me is normal.

I told him I really miss drinking tea. That now that the weather is cold, I rely on drinking hot liquids to keep me warm. It's either that, or hiking the thermostat up a few degrees. Tea bags and leaves are a lot cheaper than heating oil! He's cleared me to add 5-10 ounces of liquid a day. I think I can live with that.

For those of you who follow NFL football, you know that the Pittsburgh Steelers' fans and the Cleveland Browns fans are rivals - or they were until the Browns kept losing to the Steelers. However, both fan bases loath the Baltimore Ratbirds...I mean Ravens. Steelers because they're on equal footing for the most part and want to beat them, Browns because Baltimore got their team from Cleveland when the Browns owner moved to Baltimore and sold the fans down the river.

You know that expression "the enemy of my enemy is my friend"? Well, admit it caseydog, you need to cheer for the Browns to win this Sunday. Otherwise, how else will you be able to make the playoffs? Repeat after me, cd: Here we go Brownies, Here we go! *woof* *woof*

Isn't anyone else finding a reason to smile? What a bunch of grump-lumps you are.

THIS has to make you smile. There is an "organization" known as the Little Free Library, a book sharing program. I've thought it would be cool to put something like this at our curb, but we live deep into a subdivision and and little traffic save for the residents on our street. Oh, well.

Anyway, an innovative librarian in Idaho transformed the stump of an old, diseased, huge tree into a library! So cute!
